Our blog last month talked about establishing new routines for yourself now that the kids are in school.  We hope you enjoyed it and were inspired to move in the direction of your goals.  This month, we want to talk about the importance of making fitness a priority in your life.

We get it, the life of a mom or dad is busy and if you are like most parents you tend to put the focus on your kids rather than yourself.  We would like to enourage you to STOP putting yourself on the back  burner and make the decision to treat yourself.

Why?  We thought you would never ask!  Here are our top 4 reasons to start working out today!

  • You’ll make your bones stronger!
    As we age, we loose bone denisity and our risk of osteoporosis increases.  When you exercise, you are building not only stronger muscles but also stronger bones.
  • You’ll sleep better!

Everyday we hear people talking about how they are not getting enough sleep.  Those who participate in vigorous exercise several times a week report that they have less trouble falling asleep and have better quality sleep as well.

  • You’ll have less risks of disease!

Exercise has been linked to a decreased risk of Type 2 Diabetes, High Blood Pressure, Arthritis and more.

  • You’ll be in a better mood!

Not only will you get an endorphine boost, if you treat yourself to a membership at OCSC, you’ll be able to enjoy some really fun group fitness classes like Zumba or Pound!

So what are you waiting for?  Those benefits are no trick!  It’s time to treat yourself to a membership at OCSC.  Give us a call at 845-651-1000 and let us know if we can answer any questions!
